The Hewlett-Packard series of ink-jet printers are cheap and have served
us very well in the public areas.  If you are not ready to go all laser,
they are a safe and economical bet.  Depending on usage, keeping up with
the ink cartridges can be daunting and expensive.  Still, they've been
reliable and have a high quality print - plus they're very quiet so you
don't get the rat-a-tat we used to get with the dot matrix units.
